Bringing people forward to work

Workforce Re-entry is an end-to-end solution that helps you to:

  • Make decisions that ensure employee safety, align with corporate values and protect reputation
  • Enable leaders, managers and employees to return to work with a minimum of disruption
  • Communicate to employees in ways that drive understanding and commitment

To develop and execute a customized and flexible re-entry plan for clients, Workforce Re-entry leverages expertise from a range of disciplines to guide decision-making, such as epidemiology and public health, public affairs, corporate reputation, employee safety and wellbeing – among others.

As part of this solution, we leverage science-based communications strategy from Element Scientific Communications, corporate reputation expertise from Weber Shandwick and public affairs counsel from Powell Tate to guide strategic internal, external and crisis communications support.

Our Approach


Current State Assessment

  • Develop an internal and external fact base to inform workforce re-entry strategy


Workforce Re-entry Strategy

  • Determine a re-entry strategy that safely brings employees back to the workplace in the right sequence, taking into account government guidance, epidemiology and business needs


Change and Execution Support

  • Prepare leaders, managers and employees for workforce re-entry and changes to ways of working
  • As needed, provide support on a range of additional execution areas:
    • Safety and wellbeing
    • Inclusion
    • Workplace design
    • Employee activism and response planning


Reflect and Reinvent

  • Identify learnings from the process and identify any gaps or misalignments in capabilities, employee experience and/or workplace culture
  • Develop a reinvention implementation plan

In partnership with your Pandemic Task Force (HR, Communications, Facilities, IT, Legal etc.)

For many organizations, the COVID-19 transition to working from home happened overnight. Fortunately, workforce re-entry can be different. With more time for planning, companies are proactively developing workforce re-entry strategies that are carefully thought through and consider all angles with the goal of keeping their people safe and their businesses strong.

This is critical work. According to a recent report from KRC Research, while nearly 80 percent of employees are proud of their employers for their responses to COVID-19, the same percent say their employers will need to make changes to protect their health and safety before they feel comfortable returning to work.

Our free six-week webinar series provides guidance for communications, human resources, culture and pandemic response leaders through the lens of six different disciplines.

We hope you’ll join us on Fridays at 12pm ET to inform your re-entry planning.
